ANTHM

#1 - ANTHM - Dark Horse Rising

Oft imitated but never equaled, the DJBooth Freestyle Series ran from February 2009 through June 2011. Its 250 total entries came courtesy of a veritable who's-who of underground and emerging emcees, including rising stars...Read More

Astro

#2 - Astro - New New York

This Tuesday, the authorities whitewashed 5 Pointz, a building in Queens whose walls were home to tags dating back to the 1990s. And that's just the beginning of the changes going down in NYC. On a new promo single, his first...Read More

Kornbread

#3 - Kornbread & Skeem Price ft. PEB Rocks - Lord Lord

Kornbread, the buzzmaking emcee who brought us Feels Good and I Know, has joined forces with fellow SoCal representative Skeem Price to craft a brand new collaborative full-length. Today we get our first taste of the project...Read More

Childish Gambino

#4 - Childish Gambino - Melrose

Not so long ago, a rapper softly singing his own hooks would have been considered ridiculous. Now, even Eminem is belting out emotional ballads. Though Stronger Than I Was made me wonder whether the pendulum had swung just a...Read More

Fredo Santana

#5 - Fredo Santana ft. Kendrick Lamar - Jealous

Guess what, readers: I just vibed out to a new single from Fredo Santana, featuring guest bars from none other than Kendrick Lamar. You Jealous? Well don't be, because the cut's now available in the Booth for your listening...Read More

OCD: Moosh & Twist

#6 - OCD: Moosh & Twist ft. Hoodie Allen - All That I Know

Fresh off lending their flows to Roller Coaster, the latest feature from Booth fave Yonas, Moosh & Twist return to The DJBooth with single numero uno off their next solo album. Released along with visuals by frequent...Read More

G-Eazy

#7 - G-Eazy ft. Jay Ant - Far Alone

G-EAZY's last feature, Gotta Go, saw him reflecting with ambivalence on the whirlwind of sex, drugs and partying his life has become. On Far Alone, the lead single off his next LP, the Los Angeles-based up-and-comer harks...Read More

Ty Farris

#8 - Ty Farris ft. Royce Da 5'9 - I Promise

There are few sure things in this world but, when two rhymesayers as talented as Ty Farris and Royce Da 5'9” get together on a track, I can pretty much Promise you it's gonna be dope. The unsigned spitter's first feature on...Read More

STS

#9 - S.T.S. - Heart on My Sleeve

When I think of someone who wears their Heart on [Their] Sleeve, I imagine someone who's candid and up-front about their feelings, especially in the context of romantic relationships. ATL/Philly dual repper S.T.S. may be an...Read More

Dunson

#10 - Dunson - Circles

Lately, this game's had Dunson's mind going in Circles. But he's not about to let a little case of psychic vertigo hamper his productivity; recently, the Maryland rapper and beatsmith's been hustlng harder than ever, even...Read More

Justus

#11 - Justus - Ezekiel

The third of the major prophets in the Tanakh, Ezekiel foresaw the fall of Jerusalem, the destruction of Israel's enemies and the creation of a new Jewish city and Temple. Justus, the Southern emcee formerly known as J....Read More

Chevy Woods

#12 - Chevy Woods ft. Lloyd Banks - Kilmer

As a successful (if washed-up) Hollywood actor, Val Kilmer is presumably pretty loaded. Chevy Woods wants to be loaded, too. For the life of me, that's the only explanation I can think of for the title of the Taylor Gang...Read More

Bobby James

#13 - Bobby James ft. Casino Crisis - Scrubs

When someone says the word "Scrubs," TLC’s legendary cut instantly comes to mind, right? Well, unless you thought of the traditional hospital garb, your first instinct is the correct one when it comes to Bobby James’s...Read More

TARO

#14 - TARO - Let the Dollar Circulate

Rocking the mic takes moxie to start with, but to make your Booth debut atop a beat from two full-fledged legends? That would require some pretty big cojones. Good thing newcomer TARO has them in spades… or big ones,...Read More

Better Taste Bureau

#15 - Better Taste Bureau ft. Luna Lune - Lookin' Back

Sick of the stale, tacky sounds coming from certain individuals in the music game? Then it's time to file a complaint with the Better Taste Bureau. The Salt Lake City representatives may not be able to curb their peers' wack...Read More

The Villanz

#16 - The Villanz - Lock Down

If there's one thing I learned from comic books, it's that supervillains never stay gone. Time after time, Lex Luthor, the Joker and their ilk look like they're down for the count, only to resurface a few issues later with...Read More

M.i

#17 - M.i - The Trip

Last we heard from M.i., he was recounting a breezy summer romance on Sundress Pt. 2, a reader-approved joint off Republic Records' The Basement Chronicles: Chapter 1 compilation. Turns out that's not the only comp album to...Read More

Yo Dot

#18 - Yo Dot ft. Hart Gunther - I'm On It

Last night after 12:00 AM or so, I was in bed, getting some much-needed shut-eye. Yo Dot? He was out pounding the pavement, laying the groundwork for his future domination of the game. The Milwaukee emcee's first feature...Read More

Mike Milan

#19 - Mike Milan - Masquerade

For many men, being boyfriend #2 is a painful, even heartbreaking experience. Mike Milan, on the other hand, enjoys the Masquerade. On this freshly-minted mixtape single, his first Booth feature since May's Fly Children,...Read More

Caskey

#20 - Caskey - Bad4Ya

In contemporary America, kids are the targets of advertising practically from the moment they come out the womb. How does that onslaught of pro-consumer imagery affect the developing brain? Well, if I were a little more...Read More

Smoke DZA

#21 - Smoke DZA ft. Wiz Khalifa & Curren$y - Legends in the Making (Ashtray Pt. 2)

On Ashtray, a cut off 2012's Rugby Thompson tape, Harlem-repping DJBooth regular Smoke DZA invited fellow THC-lovers Domo Genesis and ScHoolboy Q to join him as he burned some gas in his whip. The experience was so enjoyable...Read More

AWKWORD

#22 - AWKWORD ft. Joell Ortiz, Slug (of Atmosphere) & Maya Azucena - Go!

No matter the strife and struggle life throws his way (and there's been quite a bit), AWKWORD never stops moving toward his goals. As the NYC underground mainstay puts it on his latest single, “I keep it on the Go!”...Read More

Jus Daze

#23 - Jus Daze - To Die For

Previously heard contributing guest bars to Notorious, a January feature from NYC rhymesayer AWKWORD, Juz Daze returns to make his solo Booth debut with a single that's simply To Die For. Which is ironic, because the record...Read More
